I have a Scubapro Everdry 4 drysuit. As its name says, it is 4mm thick. Everywhere… including the cuffs. I have also this Northern Diver dryglove system: https://www.ndiver.com/dry-glove-ring-system-black Start learning this movie on YouTube: There is only one big problem: it doesn’t fit !!!! Have a look at these pictures: https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipOL7wv09-njReV_UOeZivOlaFE8hk6cCCQuK6-k4vSB_ffbVIGZr4_NdoXdl3m26Q?key=a3JYLTV4MlZHVnVSM1poWkZtbmhtUWdONFlIU3ZR At the first look, it looks like the cuffs are too thick for even the gray ring: SOLUTION Use liquid soap! Use the soap on the ring and then you will see that the sleeve goes immediately through. That’s it… then follow the instructions in the video!

I’ve been diving with Jörg at the Bunkeranlagen Immenstaad. Here are some videos made with this camera: Warning, you might have to login with your Google account in order to view the videos. But, the interesting part was that I forgot to take my suit that I have to wear below the drysuit (to keep me warm). This massively changed my buoyancy and I had too much lead (~2KG too much). Useless to say that I needed to fight a lot with the weight and that I used my jacket to control the descent and ascent. Phew… what a beginner’s error… 🙁 PS: I am the one filming, the one that is being filmed is Jörg. This is also the reason why the video is so shaken.

And it is done ! I am officially certified. The second and last dive in open water was much better than the first one. It has been really, really nice and I actually enjoyed diving with drysuit. We went 8m deep to feel a bit more the suit’s squeeze 🙂 And the cold … 🙂 This was before the dive… already sweating. This time no water in the suit, just a lot of sweat. Oh… and the weather… foggy, no sun, 14 degrees in the air, 8 in the water.
